I agree with Mark D. Trevor Hayes was awesome when he was in the shop. Extremely knowledgeable and respectful when dealing with customers. He always answered my calls and returned calls when he got a chance. Never did he once try to oversell his services, he always knew what you needed and charge a very fair price.

I've dealt with garages where they try to upsell on services or repairs that we unwarranted (especially dealers). As a matter of fact he was even returning text messages on automotive issues as well. Being a great mechanic and closing up shop due to demand are two separate items.

My baby is at Ivo's as we speak....doing my FMIC and can't wait to drive her again.

If car is ready for Saturday I'll likely be heading to Cayuga for CSCS this Sunday and try her out on the 1/4mile for test & tune!!

Anyone else down?

Old thread now haha but hey we're still talking about Ivo here

Thx for the compliment! I have a love/hate relationship with the rear bumper haha. I always thought the LCI rears with nice diffusers suit my
taste more, but hey I can't complain.

Car came equipped with Aero package all around. All I need now are the M3 skirts to finish off the look.

MarkD or anyone.

Where did Trevor go? Didn't realize he closed shop.
Makes sense now as I have been trying to reach him to do work on my car.
Anyone?

Thumbs up

Well, I just picked up my car from Ivo yesterday.
I had the following work/upgrades done this time around:

-M3 front control arms (tension rods, wishbone links)
-M3 Fr/Rr sway bars
-M3 subframe bushings
-Megan Racing toe arms
-Wavetrac LSD
-Few others small things including alignment pin removal (for extra negative camber), oil change etc.

He is really busy nowadays and put in ~12 hours to get everything finished in a day. That's dedication; only competent individuals can pull that off. I did give him a heads up well in advance though. Some pics for your enjoyment:

Ah the memories from my 2008 335i, I miss her so much.

So how does she feel now?

The rear end feels tight like a virgin
I haven't even pushed it that hard yet but it feels much more composed.
Also, with the DTC button hit once, I have yet to see the traction control light come on; second gear grips really well
